Brandon Davies had another big night, but it wasn’t enough as Tobias Harris nailed a buzzer beating jumper to propel the Orlando Magic to a 91-89 victory on Wednesday night.
Harris led the way for the Magic in the win with 18 points, eight rebounds and a pair of steals. He was one of five Magic players to score in double figures, including Nikola Vucevic with 17 , Ben Gordon with 15, Channing Frye with 13 to go along with 11 rebounds and Evan Fournier with 10. Orlando also got a solid showing from rookie guard Elfrid Payton who had eight points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals.
Tony Wroten led the way for Philadelphia once again with 27 points on 9 of 16 shooting from the floor, including 4 for 6 from 3-point range. He also added eight assists, five steals, three rebounds and two blocks as well as nine turnovers. K.J. McDaniels also had a solid outing with 12 points on 50 percent shooting, including an emphatic one hand jam off an alley-oop while getting fouled. He also registered three blocks and two rebounds.
Davies was in the starting lineup for the second straight game and had the best scoring night of his career. In 29:17 (a career high), he scored 20 points on 9 of 11 shooting from the field, including a make on his only 3-point attempt. He also added four rebounds, an assist and a steal for the winless Sixers. This is the fourth time in five games that he has scored in double figures.
Up next for Davies and Philadelphia is a Friday night game against the Chicago Bulls.
